Rough Blocking September Entry

Just some rough blocking to see if I'm making good acting choices. Seems ok. Maybe when I put the animation in the sinister guy, I'll like it better. I really hate the generic Morphy guy with the goatee. I'll have to change it around some. I have seen it used far too much. Great rig though. Hard not to use it, especially for females.

When I heard the dialogue piece, I immediately thought of Flannery O'Connor's "A Good Man is Hard to Find". I'm using that as an inner dialogue reference.

I think that the characters are too on profile, we can see only one leg, not enough the faces.
And avoid that the guy come out and in of the frame during the traveling.

Re: Rough Blocking September Entry

I agree with Martial_Armand_Fontan, I don't know much about 3d, but if it's easy to cut to a shot with her face closer and him in the background/to the side that might be interesting?
The acting choices seem solid to me, I want to know who they are and what happened between them!
The bleak cliff top setting is perfect as well. Crack on.

Re: Rough Blocking September Entry

Hey, thanks for the suggestions. I'm still playing with cut shots and was going to try a closer cut of her face, and allow the guy to walk closer during that cut. I wasn't worried about him going out and back into the frame at this point. I haven't really done anything to him much yet. The long cut and "push" was bothering me a bit. I'll give the cut shot a try. I'd like to make him more menacing, like he might just push her off the cliff, but don't want it to be too obvious.

Here's an update with better camera angles. Not much else added to the animation, but I agree. It reads better. Might tweak the timing of the cuts better, but I'm not really an editor.

Gone into spline mode and starting to do some layering. The walk has been re-blocked and the guy hasn't been animated at all, but I think it's getting closer. Needs some more gestrual work, and of course facial expressions and mouth animation.

Re: Rough Blocking September Entry

your last post is more intimate you move the camera up or something. love to see more lipsyncing with it.

the way you placed the characters make you have a mental void (you don't want them to go off the cliff)
ecspecially if you know the audio.
